The present Kalpa is called Bhadra Kalpa where five Buddha’s will appear in succession – Kakusandha, Konâgamana, Kassapa and Gotama with one remaining to appear is Mettreyya. These teaching Buddha’s are called Supreme Buddha self-enlightened one. In every kalpa, Buddha will appear only in Jambudipa in Mezzima desa or Benares. At the same location in Mettreyya Buddha’s era it will be named “Ketumati”. This present Mezzima desa that is desolate now, will in Mettreyya Buddha’s era will be streamed with marvellous jewels and planted with wishing trees all over to feed people. In this way, we will be seeing ten more future Buddha’s in this order: Metteyya, Râma, Pasenadi Kosala, Bhibhû, Dîghasoni, Samkacca, Subha, Brahman Todeyya, Nâlâgiri, Palaleyya.
